bizzzzzy here!

life has just been flyin' by!!

last week was work & scrapbook fun & church stuff & an early release on friday (i went to a really interesting professional development workshop in the afternoon)...this weekend was wet & cold (stick cold, but no more rain) plus babysitting, power hour and a longaberger basket party...today, no work so i worked on my soon to be scrapbook room -- i filled another 5+ boxes with books, plus bags for giving away and 2 boxes of trash and a full trash can (big one)...

this week will be much calmer -- work & watch meghan on saturday plus power hour on sunday! i need the break!! i will also be playing & creating with some FUN new stuff from FKS! i have some EK Inspirables line (going to do some of my parents' wedding pictures) and some other new EK line (baby pictures of my brother) and some Fancy Pants huge chipboard to use!! woohoo!! i have my stuff all pulled together so i can scrap tomorrow night, all i will need to do is print the pictures (scanned & fixed them tonight)

this week has also been filled with watching the news about the MISSOURI MIRACLE! how awesome was that?!!? total surprise on finding Shawn Hornbeck! i just pray that both boys will be able to cope with what happened to them, whether it was for 4 days (Ben Ownby) or 4 1/2 years (Shawn Hornbeck)...when i found out, i was driving (in the rain) and my hands were literally shaking!! it was amazing to hear!

well, that's it for now...i think i am going to post some sort of blog or scrap challenge in a little bit (if i can think of a good one, lol)
